    i don't really get how this team is supposed to be dealing with special attacks?

    ice beam/blizzard seems to rip giant holes in things. So lets say for example you can up against an articuno, you decide to use trick, the articuno uses ice beam/blizzard which tears a giant hole out of togekiss, it is also extremely fast as you've given it a choice scarf. You decide to let it die, forretress resists at 1/2, but curse isn't going to help, it just prays that gyro ball ohko's it, which it probably will but still takes a hit from ice beam before it goes.
    articuno i just made up off the top of my head, weavile could also be annoying too. as well as a few others.

    still, i'm not entirely convinced that your team has a good answer to a lot of special attackers as a whole anyway. Personally i would be considering replacing the garchomp with something which is able to deal with it.
    Trying to think of something which resists electric which could setup in a special offense way with calm mind, but nothing coming to mind at the moment, i'll have a think.


    This is far from saying this isn't going to work, i am having difficulties in improving it, or finding huge flaws in it. Ice beam is not that common and blizzard is quite likely to miss. Can easily see this doing well. Was literally trying to find where there might be problems (good way to improve!).

    Have you tried other leads such as cresselia/rotom? as i am unsure we really want to be luring ice attacks. At least with those it should minimise seeing them.
    Nice team, what streak is it at or not finished yet?

    Yeah ive actually changed it, cause in platinum when i used trick the pokemon didnt swap out like in black 2, instead im actually using gengar with focus sash, timid nature with perfect ivs in special attack, speed, hp and like 27 in both defenses. Attacks are shadow ball, focus blast, thunderbolt and obviuosly destiny bond. Around 80% of the time i can usually take out 2 pokemon, then i usually swap in ferrothorn, and win.

    ferrothorn handles special attacks rather well i end up using leech seed and with the help of leftovers so at the end of most attacks i end losing only about 10 hp, and then just use curse, about 2-3 times then just sweep.

    ah, was no leech seed in the move list either, makes eating special attacks a little easier.

    Interesting that you deviated away from a choice lead and went for an offensive one. I suspect ferro does handle the special attacks fairly well. Any problems with fire types as of yet? as garchomp "should" kill them all, but if you've gone an offensive gengar lead, fire is going to be the main thing to throw a spanner in the works and should the garchomp fall somehow it's over ^^

    let us know how it goes!
